Sao Paulo: Former Brazil international Rivaldo and his 20-year old son Rivaldinho have both scored goals for Mogi Mirim in a 3-1 win over Macae in a second division game.

The former Barcelona player was involved in all three goals before departing the field after 50 minutes.

His pass led to a first headed goal from his son with just three minutes on the clock.

He got the second from the penalty spot in the 17th minute before Junior got a third after a one-on-one with the goalkeeper four minutes before half time.

Pipico got a consolation goal for the visitors in the 81st minute.

Rivaldo, FIFA`s World Player of the Year in 1999, returned to action last week 15 months after he retired from the game and played 70 minutes of his side`s 2-1 win over Nautico.
